Kangana Once Upon a Time

07 Aug

The best part of Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai is that it brings us Kangana Ranaut interviews. This is a commodity we need more of because someday girl will realize the meaning of the words coming out of her mouth and then we will all be sad as we watch her turn into your average mealy-mouthed successful starlet.

The process has already begun (in the pages of my favoritest tabloid, no less!) as you can see:

I am in Mumbai because here I have freedom. If I have to be told what to do I would rather live in Manali, with its social pressures… Trust me I am exercising my freedom but because I am surrounded only by married guys, I don’t get a chance to go on dates. Freedom is not about walking into a club and saying hey, I’m single. I always say that I am late by 10 years in the industry because all our best heroes, directors and producers who I deal with daily are married and have children.

Hmmm! I’m going to give that an A for effort. The effort at completely forgetting her much-reported relationship with the very skeevy Aditya Panscholi, incidentally married to the mother of his children for many years. He is now a “genuine friend” with whom she shared a  bond that “can’t be given names and explained.” Mostly because those names and explanations are likely to be rather unpleasant, I suspect.

Reassuring glimpses of the real Kangana are still visible, though! As when discussing God’s plan for her:

During Gangster itself I realised that I am exceptionally talented. So now I don’t underestimate myself…I know that if Gangster had flopped, then, despite my performance, I would have never been given another chance. But I am God’s favoured child so no one can do anything about it. I have a success percentage of 99 per cent which sometimes surprises me too.

Kangana Ranaut, ladies and gentlemen. All self-deprecating lady people kindly take notes. There will be a quiz when you apply for your next job. Even more impressively, this is not an attitude fueled by success – long, long ago, when the short-sighted officials of an unnamed beauty pageant kicked her out for unspecified reasons, she “thought ‘These people are stupid.’ And that’s how I feel today.”

She also knows how to take care of what’s important:

I totally ignore people who are negative. When I am low and my father tries to be supportive and says, “You don’t need to do this. Why are you crying and feeling bad? Don’t forget we have a beautiful house, we can go back to it” I am like, “Can you please go from here?”

You know, I totally want to try that with my father the next time I’m low and he tries to be nice to me but I’m afraid I’m completely spoiled and I don’t think I’d like to be disinherited and kicked out of my family home. So pass!

    As you put it in the previous post, hilariously bitchy.

    So when’s the Aisha review coming? I came here hoping you’d put it up already. I ended up really liking the film — it didn’t seem too pretty and the acting, even though flat at times as I’d expected, seemed to suit the characters and the mood of the film.

    Let’s have it then.

    Me love. So smart these starlets are, no?! Sigh.
    Oh, I do like the photos. Esp the one where she has a toilet plunger on her head. Awesomeness.

    p.s.: has she changed how she spells her name, or does she not know how to spell it in english?

    I believe your previous comment “No, I don’t need to go to the bathroom. Why?” applies to that Hi blitz picture as well.

    She doesn’t look anything like she did when she started…what, four years ago? And she’s all of twelve? I shudder to think what she’ll look like at thirty if someone doesn’t stop her addiction to plastic surgery.

    To me, when people start using negative people/ good vibe and other such.. they are clearly bollywood/hollywood actors.

    Btw, Kangana is 23, Katrina is 25, really? thne why dont they look like that? why do they look older than that? is it because they are wise beyond their ages? which is even tougher to buy!

    Rayshma – it immediately stuck out 😀
    I think that’s how she’s always spelled it.

    Piyush – hee, it does, doesn’t it?

    Memsaab – she’s still flatter than an ironing board so good for her on that at least.

    Sachita – THANK YOU! I thought I was the only one continually shocked at how young these girls are when you compare it to how they look.
